Long Story Short

Almost four weeks ago, I crashed and burned, health-wise, and every time I thought I was improving, I crashed even harder and found myself further away from feeling better.

As a result, in the last month, everything stopped.

I received four more beautiful birthday blocks and hurt too much to take photos and thank the block makers.

I made NO progress on birthday blocks I am making for others or any other quilting, sewing, crafting or anything.

All work on the Walking in This World exercises stopped after my last artist date, a couple hours spent at a local quilt show. Photos were taken, but never labeled or shared.

Just about my only progress in life these last four weeks is measured in doctor appointments and lab tests.

I must be some kind of crazy optimist, because I've joined Kate's little quilt swap . . . believing I will feel well enough soon enough for long enough to make a little quilt for this swap.

And I'm optimistic that I'll feel well enough to catch-up on blogging soon, too.

Oh Sophie -- I am so sorry to hear about your ordeal. I wish there were something the blogosphere could do to take away all your troubles. Know that we're thinking of you and hoping for your recovery. Glad to get this note from you, anyway!

Oh man.. I hope you feel better soon! Is/are the new doctor(s) working out?

I'm so sorry you're not doing well! No pressure here, but feel free to contact me if you have the inclination. I've had quite a few health problems, including chronic EBV, candadiasis, fibromyalgia, a raft of allergies and sensitivities, etc., etc. over many years---and I've made pretty good progress the past few years dealing with them. Maybe something I've learned would help you! BTW, I juice every day, too. Your green lemonade looks wonderful!

I sure hope you feel better soon, or at least figure out what the problem is.

Oh my dear. I want you to be better. There must be an answer to your difficulties.
I am sending my love and best wishes to you.
I am glad you were able to get to the keyboard and give us an update. I am sure your many friends will send positive thoughts your way. That will help.

I hope you are feeling better by now. Being ill really sucks.

Me again. I'm still not up to speed with Blogger, and thought you'd be able to email me directly. Turns out i can't email you directly either! Please feel free to contact me at r.m.hannah@sbcglobal.net. For more than 35 years I've been dealing with EBV and all the stuff that goes along with it. In the past few years, I've finally made some good progress. I'm not selling anything, and there's no hidden agenda here---just hoping that maybe what I've been through and learned can help another quilter.

I am so sorry you are struggling. I just read an article about advice our parents gave us and it said everything will pass eventually, good or bad. Will be praying for your health. Best wishes.
